Peach Berry Cobbler

There is a great little market not far from where I live that has fantastic deals on produce every Wednesday. This last week I was able to find peaches for about $.49 per lb. Of course, I had to buy at least a pound or two. Now that I had my acquisition, what would I do with it? I looked to find a great recipe for peach cobbler. I found this one for Peach-Blueberry...Tell me, how can you go wrong with that combination? I took it to potluck and it was scarfed up pretty quickly. I had to make another one for our family to enjoy!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup soy milk
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
3 cups fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 cup fresh blueberries (frozen work well, too)
1 Tbs. margarine
1 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. white sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl. stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and baking powder. Mix in milk and 1/4 cup margarine until smooth.

In a medium saucepan, stir together the brown sugar, cornstarch and water. Mix until smooth. Mix in peaches and blueberries. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Mix in 1 Tbs. margarine and 1 Tbs. lemon juice. Continue cooking until the butter melts. Pour into an 8x8 baking dish. Evenly spoon batter over hot fruit.

As a final garnish, mix together 2 Tbs. sugar and cinnamon in a small container. Sprinkle over the batter as much as desired. (I only used half of the mixture.) Place the baking dish into the preheated oven. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the crust comes out clean.

Yield: About 9 servings

Original Recipe was submitted to by Amy Posont. I've tweaked it to make it vegan.

  1. We love Peach Cobbler :) This looks yummy. .49 per lb is such a great price. I need to start canning! I have not done it yet, but I want to.
